Any experience with the S&W 329PD?

Post by MikeFL86 » Sun Dec 11, 2011 2:54 pm

I've yet to handle one, but I think I'd like a revolver in either .357 magnum or .44 in the near future. I've read that recoil can be painful with some loads. But is it that bad with some nice Hogue rubber grips? Buffalo Bore also makes some lower recoil .44 magnum for the gun. Does anyone have experience with these?

I'd search Michael Bane's website in the archives. He liked the gun, in theory. But his locked up because of the damned internal lock getting whipsawed in such a light gun.
